Magnetic loop antenna for 160-40 meters 1KW. Post 1728.

Here's a nice antenna project for those radio amateurs living in deed restricted properties (HOAs/CC&Rs).  Woody (N4MQ) takes us step-by-step through the design, construction, adjustment, and use of this magnetic loop antenna that covers all amateur/ham radio bands from 160 meters to 40 meters.  The heart of the antenna system is a pair of 45,000 volt vacuum capacitors tuning a 12-foot/3.658 meters diameter loop, showing construction of the capacitor tuning cabinet.  Be careful with this project.  Potentially lethal voltages are involved.

Thanks for joining us today.
